Movie Summary

Director:
Sanaa Hamri
Released:
2008
Rating:
PG-13
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 is a sequel to the film of the same name and based on books by Ann Brashares, about the adventures of friends Carmen (America Ferrara), Bridget (Blake Lively), Lena (Alexis Bledel) and Tibby (Amber Tamblyn). The film begins after their freshman year in college, finding Bridget as a soccer star at Brown, Lena attending Rhode Island School of Design, Tibby as a film major at NYU, and Carmen attending Yale. When they arrive home to participate in the ritual of exchanging their traveling pants, Carmen, who has been unhappy and lonely at Yale, is disappointed to find that they all have plans to be away from home for the summer. Bridget goes on an archeological expedition in Turkey and then to visit Greta, the maternal grandmother her father kept a secret, who teaches her about the past of her mother, who committed suicide at 35, easing Bridget's fears of the same unhappiness and helping her to cope with her past. Lena starts a relationship with a figure drawing model from the class she is taking, Leo (Jesse Williams), partially to help her get over her first love Kostas (Michael Rady), who re-enters Lena's life suddenly, but whom she rejects. Tibby is working and writing a script at NYU over the summer, and ends her relationship with her boyfriend Brian over a fear of intimacy. Carmen returns to Yale's theater department, where she formerly worked behind the scenes, but tries her hand at acting despite her insecurities. The pants that hold them together are stolen and taken to Greece by Effie, Lena's sister, when she is angry at Lena for picking her friends over her. The girls are brought together and go there to find them, but what they find instead is far more significant.moreless
